    WINDOWS XP ONLY

    Go to MY computer

    Go to hard drive where AIM is installed

    Go to Documents and Settings

    Go to your username (Has to be one where you use your AIM on or it won't work)

    Go to Application and Data*

    Go to AIM

    Go to your screen name

    Edit the file "info.htm" file

    within <body></body> is the area you put your text. You have no limit. Enjoy&#33;

    Yes, it still cuts it off. I believe the limit is 1024 characters. The great part is... the built-in profile editor puts in so much extra crap, so if you know basic HTML (we&#39;re talking real basic here, with it&#39;s arms and legs cut off), you can eliminate most of the fluff.

    But, when I was using AIM, the trick I used to get more out of my profile was to put a link to page I had hosted on some free webspace.

    Code:
    &#60;a href=&#34;http&#58;//www.host.com/aim/aboutme.html&#34; target=&#34;_self&#34;&#62;About Me&#60;/a&#62;
    Don&#39;t forget the target="_self", or else it will just fire up your default browser. The best part of this is that you can use server-side scripting languages, like PHP, as the link target. Using this method, a little PHP script that I wrote, and a Winamp plugin, I was able to create a list of the most recent MP3s I had listened to, which was accessable through my AIM profile.
